tensorflow machine learning standard option for algo trading but there is simpler options

tensorflow machine learning standard option for algo trading but there is simpler options

 

Various links below show simple ways to use linear regression with R Squared. It then evolves into using SciKitLean Python Package which is relatively simple but could be effective if you are just after R Square to measure strength of the trend.

This next link offers a look the complicated TensorFlow Model Library from Google. This is the definite standard defacto in the financial industry. I know this when I saw samples used by high end HFT shops with their workshops for the Newsweek AI conference in NYC last Nov.

Set stock data target with https://medium.com/mlreview/a-simple-deep-learning-model-for-stock-price-prediction-using-tensorflow-30505541d877 <– TensorFlow complex but offers many options

I will also say that TensorFlow offer the most choice. See below a tip below from someone in my private Telegram group. This could save you loads of time instead of wasting time by going down rabbit holes.

For crypto use, https://dashee87.github.io/deep%20learning/python/predicting-cryptocurrency-prices-with-deep-learning/

Note that this uses Keras which obviously simpler than TensorFlow. I would probably move towards TF as I get deeper into this.

Here is that useful tip:

My quick-fire tips: in general I’ve had more success constantly-retraining the ML models (every day in your case) as opposed to the usual train/test/validate method. Either that, or use ML models that are specifically designed to capture the time-varying properties of time series (these models can usually be updated in an online fashion). Never used raw prices as inputs—there is so much autocorrelation in the features that the predicted price will just end up being the last close. Instead use returns (I prefer logarithmic returns over simple returns, but it doesn’t make much difference).

Try to use a target that is directly related to the outcome of a potential trade. If that is too complicated, try having separate targets for direction and volatility. I prefer regression algos to classifiers. If possible, require that your model predicts opposite scenarios for both a long and short trade; e.g. it predicts a long trade will make money *AND* a short trade will lose money, and vice-versa. Avoid neural networks when you’re just starting out – there are too many hyperparameters to tune. Ensemble methods are fantastic, and can be very profitable

Here is my conclusion:

If you are like me just trying to figure out general trend through LSR and R-square, I tend to use these for now. As a result, I may use the SciKitLearn example for simplicity but stop there. I really don’t want to go down the various rabbit holes to experiment with more complex ML libraries. I see no reason compared to the recent sub minute study/reseach/playing around experiment at the sub minute level I started back in Dec which became a time waster with no results.

 

For those keeping track, if you don’t want to use Python with TensorFlow there is a simpler C++ option

This is the simplest so far but which started this whole level of research

complex options backtesting strategy automatically with future courses coming soon

complex options backtesting strategy automatically with future courses coming soon

 

Two queries from newsletter subscribers

Hi Bryan,

Do you have any course module for backtesting any complex option strategies automatedly ?

If you have, please advise.

What I really need is to backtest my complex option trading strategy (more than 4 legs at a time).

 I have backtested manually for the last 5 years, and it proves has a decent return every year. Now, i want to automate the backtest. Since it needs a lot of time to bt option strategy manually.

But since you offer me, futures and option course, do you have backtested the strategy for the last 5 to 10 years and has high performance every year and high sharpe ratio ?

If you have please advise.

Try backtrader.com for backtesting in Python

RenTech HFT Hedge Fund Sees ‘Significant’ Risk of Correction

RenTech HFT Hedge Fund Sees ‘Significant’ Risk of Correction

Here is some quotes on this forecast:

“However, with higher rates and more volatility a distinct possibility, there is a significant risk that asset prices will correct,” he said.

“While the fear of missing out may not be a concern for equity investors, increasing euphoria mixed with a bit of complacency certainly is,” he said. “Historically low levels of volatility may well have given investors a false sense of security in the nearly two years since the last market correction.”

“Who is going to buy the paper the Federal Reserve accumulated during the years of quantitative easing? If the Chinese reassess their appetite for U.S. debt, rates will have to move up to finance the projected $700 billion U.S. deficit this year,” he said.

“While we cannot know when that will happen with the current markets, we are doing our best to prepare for what may be turbulence ahead,” he wrote.

Heavy industry HFT hedge fund players at Newsweek AI Data Science Conference in NYC

It seems that yesterday started out in a whirlwind. At 10 AM EDT, an official Tweet went out on Newsweek’s official Twitter account of 3.3 million followers announcing their upcoming event in New York starting Dec 5-7. It is quite the event entitled “Newsweek Artificial Intelligence and Data Science in the Capital Markets.” It has a variety of big names from asset management companies ranging from Sigma Two to Blackrock to Goldman Sachs. Holy! You really need to be there if you want to learn about the latest in this field. I put together a 15 minute video to detail what will be included over the 3 days.

Whoa! There are so many industry institutional players at this conference !! Regiser here: http://www.aidataconf.com/
Did I mention that we are one of the sponsoring media partners for this huge event??

 

Well, being recongnized for that, I guess set a pre-sale deadline of this THURSAY (as in 2 days!) before the official Black Friday/Cyber Money hits this weekend!! That mean you can expect a 50% increase come this Friday Nov 24

!! 

Here are the deets (as this kids say these days)

 

As I mentioned we are moving into Black Friday/Cyber Monday event. Basically, this deal includes all

3 of my courses here which covers Python Infrastructure, Futures and Options, and Interactive Broker API

 

12 month subscription to Quant Analytics

 

This combo totals well into the thousands. After next week, I plan to raise this current ‘special’ price over 50%.

 

See the details here;

After Monday, there will be another price increase as in doubling the rate come Tues It could go up from there if the this strategy works out in the long run. More details to follow in a few days on that.

As you know, time starts ticking. Tick tock. This deal will vanish permanently!
